I am afflicted with a window opening from time to time purporting to take me to http://happy888.3322.org/home.htm
website and another similar called http://happy10000.3322.org. The website is in what looks like Chinese.I have tried scanning with Spyware Doctor, AVG antiSpyware, SpyBot Search and destroy and Ad-Aware Se. None has helped. I am worried because this behaves like a piece of spyware but I don't know what it does. I have seen references to a metod of removal using SDFix in safe mode but I have never heard of this and am reluctant to use it without advice from a trusted source. Can anyone help please? I would be very grateful.
Allan

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users

* Double-click SUPERAntiSpyware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
* An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
* If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Udates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
* When done, select "Scan for Harmful Software".
* There are three scanning options. Choose "Perform Complete Scan" and click "Next".
* When done, a Scan Summary will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
* Make sure they all have a checkmark next to them and click "Next".
* A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
* Click Preferences and then click the statistics/logs tab.
* Click the dated log and press View log. A text file will appear so you can see the results.
* Select close to exit the program.
* Scan in SAFE MODE

please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

happy888 downloader/trogen

Yes this is an anoying virus was making this site and rubbish web sites some promoting a windows registory cleaner and others with porn, keep coming up.

This happy888 virus seems to be impossible to delete with AVG, and avast, though think they do stop it from trying to download more trogens.

That antivirus program suggested above may have worked is early yet, but think the virus killers detect it but either can't remove it or in reinstalls on start up. Know from reading other posts that it is a line that internet explorer uses, which if you can find it using windows xp, and delet it you would be doing well. But can be deleted on windows nt.

Noticed that zone alrm pro stops this virus from working, but will not delete it, this can be installed for 15 day free trial, and is quickest patch, but think it cost 40-60 for the full versian, and trial versian of normal zone alarm offers no protection.
